Response to Taverner (Original post)

Sun Dec 9, 2012, 05:42 AM

29. I was living at the coast at the time.

Did not have a t.v. then, because you had to have cable or satellite and we were too poor for that.
So, I would've learned the terrible news from either the news paper or the radio. I seem to remember that I heard it from my former husband, when he got home from work.

I remember crying...a lot.

John was my favorite Beetle. I grew up listening to their music, and all the rest of what is now considered Classic Rock.

1980 was a terrible year: Ronnie Raygun became President; Mt. St. Helens violently erupted, killing many animals and about 58 people, blowing down thousands of acres of forests, etc. And, John Lennon was murdered by some scum sucking pig who wanted his 15 minutes of fame. Not a year I would want to live over again.
